MINUTES. 



Greensboro, N. C, November 14, 1888.

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF MISSIONS AND 
SUNDAY SCHOOLS. 

STATE MISSIONS. 

God has given another year of great success in the prosecution of the work, 
by this Convention, committed to the Board. There has been in our churches, 
for the past ten years, a healthy and a rapid growth of the spirit of missions, 
and in no year of our historjhas this spirit been more marked, or its fruit more 
satisfactoiy, as shown in the difficulties overcome and in work of the denomina- 
tion, than in the year now about to close. 

Three things have made it specially hard on the Board and its missionaries 
this year, viz. : 

1. The Board, believing it to be the wish of the Convention, undertook 
to do a larger work than ever before. This made it necessary for the churches 
to give more for State Missions, Foreign Missions, Home Missions and Col- 
portage than ever before in their history. 

2. The crops in many parts of the Slate were cut short by the long summer 
drought, and then came the floods and swept away much of what was made, so 
that many of the brethren by these things were made less able to give than in 
former years. 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION, 9 

3. This has been a general political year, and many of the people have been 
much absorbed in these matters, and some of them, it seems, have forgotten to 
make their contributions to the work of the Board. 

But, amid it all, God's guidance and blessings have been given, and this year's 
work has been, in all departments, the largest ever done through your Board. 
Last year the Treasurer reported for State Missions $9,380.65, this year 
$11,454.04 ; last year the Board reported eighty-two missionaries, and this year 
ninety-five missionaries and fourteen colporters — total 109. 

Total cost of work. -. -.$11,990 02 

Total contributions ii,454 04 



Remaining debt -- -- $ 535 9^ 

The work done on mission fields and the contributions made by them can be 
partly shown by the following figures:

Churches organized 32 New schools organized.. . 48 

Paid pastors... -...$8,073 12 Contributions by Schools.. 6S2 25 

Building and repairing, $10,203.62. 

THE GOSPEL HERALD. 

We have for six months published a monthly mission journal rep1*esenling all 
the work of the Boards. It has, we think, greatly aided in our work, and not 
a small part of the increase in results has been due to the information given 
through this paper. It has more than paid its own expenses. 

Paid up income from the paper — $ 34^ 06 

Outstanding income from the paper 62 20 



Total , - $ 408 26 

Cost of paper, printing and postage .. 281 00 



Excess of income over expenses ..$ 127 26 

SELF-SUPFORT. 

Every pastor aided by this Board should most earnestly urge his people 
towards self-support, and should not be a party to a request for aid when it is 
the duty of the church to support itself. Since our last Convention the follow- 
ing points aided by your Board have so increased in numbers and efficiency that 
it is not necessary to further aid them, viz.: West Durham, Roxboro, Morgan- 



lO MINUTES OP^ THE 

ton, Swepsonville, Mt. Airy, Red Springs, Sassafras Fork, Gastonia, Taylors- 
ville, Troy, Rich Fork, Hickory Mountain, Chimney Rock, Macedonia and 
Hallsville. It is believed that a large number of places assisted this year need 
not be aided by your Board another year. These churches are principally in 
the towns and have been aided several years. 

RECOMMENDATIONS. 

1. Since the appropriation of money to weak churches and mission fields is 
an important part of the Board's work and should not be made without full 
information and due deliberation, we recommend that no appropriations of 
money be made at the Convention. 

2. Since it is unwise for the Board, by an appropriation of its funds, to aid 
any church for a long number of years, we recommend that the kni^th of time 
the churches have been helped be duly considered in the appropriations to be 
made. 

3. Since there is yet much real destitution in our State we recommend that 
the Board be instructed to supply the destitution, as rapidly as possible, even if 
it shall be necessary to withdraw its help from many of the churches now aided 
by it. 

SUNDAY SCHOOLS. 

At the last session of the Convention the Mission and Sunday-school Boards 
were consolidated, and this united Board has found the change to have been a 
wise one. The Sunday-school work is not making the progress made in the 
other departments of labor. This we greatly regret. The difficulty has been 
to stimulate the schools to take active steps towards organizing and maintain- 
ing mission schools. Your Board has recommended to the Associations that in 
each of them there be formed a Sunday-school Association on the same plan of 
our present District Associations, to meet annually in the early spring, to do 
Sunday-school mission and colportage work, and to discuss such topics as will 
produce the best results. 

This suggestion has been most heartily endorsed by many of the Associations, 
committees appointed to arrange for the first meetings, and we look for good 
results from these meetings. 

Another year will let us see what can be done. 

The Convention at its last session suggested that the Board of Missions and 
Sunday-schools arrange for and hold, during the summer, a State Sunday- 
school Convention, but after conferring with many of those interested and mak- 
ing all due investigation, it was found to be impracticable to carry out the sug- 
gestion of the Convention. 

WORK. 

Quarterlies and Papers sent out 76,497 

Ministers aided (donations and discounts) $231.65 

Schools aided 196.48 

Total value of donations ...$428.13 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. II 

STATISTICS. 

New schools organized 128 

Present number of schools (approximated) -- i, 500 

Number of attendants (approximated) 115,000 

SUPPLY STORE. 

Stock on hand - $1 , 165.40 

Solvent credits (books in hands of colporters) — 1,058.54 

Solvent credits 465-33 

Office furniture, stationery, &c -. 225.00 

Total - $2,714.27 

Claims against the supply store - - $1,235.44 

Increase of debt over last year . 594- 92 

Increase of stock over last year 1,543.04 

This store ought to have a capital of $5,000 with which to do the great work 
committed to it. It has never had more than $700. The limit of its business 
is not in the fields open to it, but in its small amount of funds. Cannot 
something be done to enlarge this work ? There is, perhaps, no place in all of 
our denominational work where an investment of $5,000 would add so much to 
the development. and usefulness of our churches and Sunday-schools. 

COLPORTAGE. 

The Convention at its last session instructed the Board "to inaugurate a 
system of colportage," and in obedience thereto the Board appointed a number 
of colporters, supplied them with Bibles, Testaments, good books, Sec, and 
sent them forth to do their work. They have done well. The necessity for 
and the possibility of doing this work have been demonstrated. The following 
are the names of our colporters, viz. : 

J. W. Rose, E. T. Hanner, R. T. Limrick, L. R. Carroll, W. S. Melvin, 
A. W. Crabtree, G. P. Hamrick, T. F. Davis, Thomas Wright, G. M. Burcham, 
W. R. Dupree, J. W. Millard, and J. J. Russell (col.) and B. B. Hill (col.). 
Some of these have recently gone to work. They have done well. Six of them 
have worked on salaries, and eight on commission or through arrangements made 
by their Associations. 

Bibles sold 530, Testaments sold 966, Books 1,734, Bibles given away 720, 
Testaments given away 1,486, Pages of Tracts and Papers given away 486,478. 
For amounts paid them, we refer to the treasurer's report. A door of great 
usefulness is open to us in this department, but the work cannot be done with- 
out money to purchase books and pay colporters. The contributions from the 
churches have been small, perhaps les^ than $200. 

AMERICAN BAPTIST PUBLICATION SOCIETY. 

This Society, through Dr. C. C. Bitting, to aid us in this work, has given us 
in cash $270.84, and 1,000 Bibles and 2,000 Testaments. But for this timely 



12 MINUTES OF THE 

/ 

gift your Board could have done almost nothing in this department the past 
year. In the hands of the colporters in Bibles, Testaments, Books, &c., 
$1,058.54. 

For our colportage work we should have, at least, $5,000 a year, and the 
churches should be induced to make regular and liberal contributions to it. The 
work wisely done will lay a foundation for a larger and a more blessed ingather- 
ing of souls, and a better informed, a more consecrated, and a more liberal 
membership through all the years to come. 

HOME MISSIONS. 

BY A. G. M'MANAWAY. 

The report on Home Missions may appropriately congratulate the Conven- 
tion on the success attending the work of the Home Board, and also on the 
increased interest manifested in our State in that work. Never before has 
North Carolina contributed as much to the spread of the Gospel among our 
Southern fellow-citizens within a single year as has been contributed since the 
meeting at Durham. And for every dollar contributed the Board can show 
tangible results. God's blessing has been marvelously bestowed upon the labors 
of our missionaries, and from every field there have come tidings of ingather- 
ings and marks of Divine favor. This report will not weary the Convention by 
giving details of the work done and the results accomplished. Let it sufifice to 
say that nearly 300 missionaries are employed by this Board, and that $200,000 
per annum should be freely given by Southern Baptists to prosecute the great 
work. 

Our own State has never come up to the full measure of her duty to Home 
Missions, but there are gratifying signs of improvement, and it is to be hoped 
that ere long she will take her place in the front rank of the supporters of the 
Board. 

The only expense incurred by the Vice-President has been for the purpose of 
disseminating information. None of it has been for traveling expenses. He is 
striving to secure a representative in every church in the State, whose duty it 
shall be to see that at least one collection is taken every year for Home Mis- 
sions. That this object may be attained, the co-operation and earnest efforts 
of all the members of the Convention will be needed. An affirmative vote on 
this report will not accomplish the results aimed at unless followed by persist- 
ent effort throughout the coming year. 

FOREIGN MISSIONS. 

BY REV. W. L. WRIGHT. 

During the last conventional year the contributions both in men and money 
have been larger than in any previous year in our history. Three new mission- 
aries have been appointed from North Carolina and they are expected to sail 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 1 3 

from San Francisco for China about the 28th inst, viz : Rev. E. F. Tatum, 
Rev. T. C. Britton, and Rev. L. N. Chappell. Miss M. Lillian Wright has 
recently gone from this State to Mexico. There has been sent by the churches 
of this Convention, 

To Bro. F. H. Briggs for Foreign Missions $7.94° 08 

To Dr. Tupper (direct) -.- 179 21 

Total ... $8,119 24 

This is more than one thousand dollars in advance of our previous year's con- 
tributions. If we add to this the amount sent up by the Western Baptist Con- 
vention it will carry the contributions of the whole State above eight thousand 
dollars. Contrasting these facts with the past they are encouraging, but in con- 
trast with our members and ability they tell us that much yet remains to be 
done. We have in North Carolina at least 1,300 churches, with a membership 
of not less than 150,000. Our contributions of men and means are sadly dis- 
proportionate to these numbers and to our ability, and above all to the demands 
of this great soul-saving work. Not more than two-thirds of our churches 
contribute to Foreign Missions. The contributions in these contributing 
churches are made by less than two-thirds of the membership. So we must 
look the fact in the face that more than one half of the members of our churches 
are contributing nothing for the salvation of the heathen. 

It is to be noted with gratitude, however, that a large number of our Sunday 
Schools are contributing to this work and that the number of contributing 
churches is steadily increasing. 

LOSS BY DEATH, 
Our Foreign Board has lost during last year three of its most valued workers, 
viz.: Sister Jane W. Graves, Bro. E. E. Devault, and our own beloved Yates. 
His last words called for more men for China. He fell at his post and truly his 
works follow him. 

THE YATES' MEMORIAL. 

It was thought fitting that some service in memory of our veteran missionary 
should be held by our churches and Sunday-schools. This suggestion, with 
some materials for the service, were sent out in one thousand letters. Several 
hundred such services were held and the memorial contribution amounted to 
more than $1,500. 

LITERATURE. 

On the 1st of January the Vice-President sent to each pastor in the State and 
to many Sunday-school superintendents a letter and sample packages of all the 
literature furnished by our Foreign Mission Board, proposing to send as much 
of each kind as they would carefully and prudently distribute. More than ten 
thousand pamphlets, leaflets and Foreign Mission Journals have been sent out. 

Fifteen new missionaries have been appointed during the past year. Our 
entire Foreign Mission force now numbers, native and American, about one 
hundred and their fields are in China, Africa, Italy, Mexico and Brazil. 



14 MINUTES OF THE 

SOME SUGGESTIONS. 

1. Our Sunday-schools should hold missionary services frequently and keep 
this work prominently before the minds of all in the school. 

2. Our pastors should preach more sermons and make more addresses on 
missions with appropriate songs, scripture readings and prayers. 

3. More use should be made of mission literatuie — books, pamphlets and 
periodicals. 

4. The individual conscience of each church member should be touched by 
God's truth and by information about the work, and made to feel its duty, and 
then by some syste?ji each member should be asked to contribute. 

5. The condition and doom of the heathen as taught in the Word of God, 
and not in human theory, should be plainly presented, believed and God's com- 
mand obeyed. 

Finally, brethren, let us remember that we have the gospel and all its attend- 
ant blessings and immortal hopes because in the ages past " somebody's fathers 
gave to our fathers this glad news of salvation and eternal life." Shall we not 
give the glorious gospel of the blessed God to the generations of our brethreiv 
who sit in darkness and the shadow of death? We have the opportunity and 
we are endowed with the means, and opportunity means responsibility and 

endowment means duty.

C. Durham, Corresponding Secretary. 



THE THIRD ANNUAL REPORT OF THE WOMAN'S CENTRAL 

COMMITTEE. 

The third year's work of the Woman's Central Committee of Missions has 
been one of steady endeavors on the lines hitherto marked out. 

We have corresponded with the W^. M. Societies already formed, en- 
deavored to organize others, and have kept all known to us constantly supplied 
with missionary literature. The Missionary Talk, our little monthly mission- 
ary leaflet, has been regularly published without expense to the Board and dis- 
tributed free to the number of 14,400. Such an abundant sowing of missionary 
facts, we hope, will in lime bring an abundant reaping of missionary enthu- 
siasm. 

The only new feature of the year's work has been the effort to organize the 
children of our churches and Sunday-schools into Sunbeam Missionary Societies 
after the excellent plans of Rev. Geo. Braxton Taylor, which have met with 
such wonderful success in the other Southern States. Though we have not suc- 
ceeded in this as we would have wished, something has been done, as shown in 
the following report, which, we hope, is but an earnest of what is to be. We 
cannot loo highly recommend the organization of Sunbeam Societies in Mis- 
sionary Baptist Sunday-schools where it is wished to early train the children to 
love and give to missions. 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 1 5 

For the coming year your committee's aim shall be, while still endeavoring to 
organize new societies, to bring the old ones to a more regular and liberal 
benevolence towards the grand cause whose name we have on our Baptist ban- 
ner. In this work we would ask you, the State Mission Board, to bespeak for 
us the aid of our Baptist pastors, with whose assistance we might, ere the end 
of another year, hope to double the amounts given by our Woman's Missionary 
Societies and thus stand equal with our sister States Georgia and South Carolina. 

Total amount contributed .$l,88i 59

Hoping that in the coming year the Baptist women of North Carolina may 

labor as never before to hasten the day when the knowledge of the Lord shall 

fill the earth as the waters cover the sea, this report is respectfully submitted.

for the Orphanage, and the report was adopted, as fol- 
lows : 

REPORT ON ORPHANAGE. 

The Baptists of North Carolina have had the lienor of being pioneers in sev- 
eral important enterprises. They were the first to utilize the power of the 
press in the publication of a religious journal; they founded the first denomina- 
tional college in the State, and they established the first church orphanage. 

We are glad to know that the Epi.scopalians have lately originated a similar 
institution at Charlotte, and that the Presbyterian Synod, at its recent session, 
took steps to found an orphan asylum for that church. It is earnestly t.o be 
hoped that all the Christian denominations of the State will soon found asy- 
lums for their own orphan children, as there is an urj^ent call for a dozen such 
institutions, and it is a charity which is eminently worthy of the generous liber- 
ality of all Christian people. 

We honestly think our churches are to be congratulated upon the special 
plan upon which our orphanage is conducted, and the extraordinary favor it 
found with our people. God's blessing has rested upon it from the beginning, 
for though it has been in operation only three years, it is free from debt, and 
already possesses a valuable farm of 306 acres, a number of buildings, admira- 
bly adapted to the purposes for which they were designed, and ninety-two little 
unforuniat.s, who are the recipients of its benefactions. Larger accommoda- 
tions, however, are demanded to meet the many appeals for admission into the 
institution, and your committee express the confident hope that the same gra- 
cious Father of the Fatherless, who has heretofore raised up friends to equip 
the Orphanage, will put it into the hearts of others of his servants to provide 
for the wants of the enterprise as they may arise. Let us all labor and pray 
and sacrifice for this most Christ-like charity. 



22 MINUTES OF THE 

Your committee would respectfully submit the following practical recommen- 
dations- 

First: That we give our hearty support to the organ of the Orphanage, 
Charity and Children, which has proved a most efficient auxiliary in its support. 
Second: That each church and pastor be requested to see to it that the claims 
of the Orphanage be brought before the churches and Sunday schools of the 
State, and that a collection in this behalf be asked each year, of every church, 
and each month of every Sunday school. 

Third: That all moneys raised for the Orphanage be sent directly to the 
Superintendent, or Treasurer of the Orphanage, at Thomasville.

Board of Trustees of limited terms, all vacancies in said Board to be tilled by

F. H. BRIGGS, 

Treasurer Baptist State Convention. 

I hereby certify that I have examined the books of F. H. Briggs, Treasurer 
of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina, for the past conventional 
year, comparing the same with the acknowledgements in the Biblical Re- 
corder. I find ail accounts with the various objects of the Convention to be 

correct, and disbursements supported by proper vouchers.

Auditor N . C. Baptist State Convention.

The report on Periodicals came up as unfinished business^ 
and after discussion and amendment, was adopted, as fol- 
lows : 

PERIODICALS. 

The tendency of the age, in all the departments of human effort, whether in 
the secular or Christian world, is to individualize by bringing to the aid of the 
various enterprises the best available agencies to render them each self-sustain- 
ing and independent. 

In the wide and constantly widening field of Christian endeavor, where 
churches and Sabbath Schools are to be planted, where conquests are to be 
made for Christ, where His cause is to be strengthened and nourished, the expe- 
rience of denominational effort has proven that among the most potent and 
effective of all human agencies is that of able and judiciously conducted jour- 
nals and other forms of religious literature, devoted specially to their respective 
interests. 

To this none will bear more willing testimony, perhaps, than the Baptists of 
North Carolina. Since the establishment and adoption of the Biblical Recorder 
as the representative of Baptist views and Baptist truth, through all the trials 
and struggles which have confronted us as a denomination, it has been justly 
recognized as a faithful ally, upon whom we could rely for powerful and effec- 
tive aid. Its service in the past is a strong witness on behalf of that wisdom 
and foresight of our fathers which brought it into being. But who shall esti- 
mate its possible usefulness under Divine sanction and guidance in prosecuting 
the gre-at work which our Master seems to have committed to us as a denomina- 
tion in this Slate? If such a paper has been useful and valuable in the past, it 
must be almost indispensable in the future 

In the propagation and defence of the truth, as we believe it; in the advo- 
cacy and maintenance of great principles, as we cherish them; in the design 
and prosecution of great enterprises, as we purpose them; in the accomplish- 
ment of the grand and glorious work which, under the providence of God, is 
constantly opening up before us, our denomination, our churches, our laity, our 
ministeis, our missionaries, our colporters, all must have a paper which all can 
truly claim as our paper, and your committee cannot too earnestly urge a 
stronger support and a wider circulation of the Recorder among our people. 

Charily and Children, published by Bro. J. H. Mills at the Orphanage in the 
interest of that noble institution, and the Gospel Herald, published by Bro. C. 
Durham at Raleigh, under the auspices of our Board of Missions and Sunday- 
Schools, are most efificient and valuable auxiliaries in promoting the interests of 
these cherished enterprises and are admirably adapted to their respective spheres 
of labor. 

The Southern Baptists have efificient co-workers in The Foreign Mission 
Journal, published in Richmond, Va., and which is devoted to the work of 
Southern Baptists in foreign lands. Price, one year, single copies, 50 cents;

four copies, $1; twenty-five copies, $5. And Our Home Field, a monthly 
journal, published by the Home Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Con- 
vention, Atlanta, Ga.. devoted to Home Missions. Price, single copies, 50 
cents; five copies, $2; twenty copies in one package, $6; one hundred copies, $25. 
Kind Words, that sprightly and popular Sunday Scliool paper, is published 
weekly in Atlanta, Ga., (at 50 cents per copy in packages of eight copies or 
more) by the Home Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. 

The Wake Forest Student, a monthly journal, devoted to education and the 
interests of Wake Forest College, is published under the management of the 
students of that institution, and for the high moral tone uf its matter and the 
ability with which it is conducted, it is commended to the favor and support of 
the Baptist.s of the State. L. L. POLK,

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON OBITUARIES. 

While we have been recounting the victories and rejoicing over the 
successes of the year gone by, and contemplating with throbbing hearts 
the prospects of enlarged usefulness in the future, it is right that we stop 
and place on record the names of some of our brethren who have fallen, 
sword in hand, with their faces toward the enemy. First, we mention 

REV. M. T. YATES, D. D., 

Who was, perhaps, as great a man as ever trod the face of this earth 
One year ago, we all hoped to see Bro. Yates at this Convention; but 
the Master preferred to take him home. He died at his post in Shang- 
hai, China, where he had been for forty years, the leader of missionaries 
among all the Protestant Christians. There have been few grander 
spectacles in all time, than Bro. Yates and his devoted wife entering the 
great city of Shanghai, sitting in the region and shadow of death, to 
preach to them the gospel of Jesus, unless indeed it be the great work 
God permitted him to do in his long and useful life. 

Matthew T. Yates cairied Uj) to the throne of God a great trophy; he 
carried up the key with which he had unlocked the door of sin and igno- 
rance ill which millions of his fellow men were imprisoned, to let in the 
light of the glorious gospel of the blessed God. May his grand life stim_ 
ulate us to greater work for the Master. 



RE\'. A. D. BLACKWOOD, 

Died duiing the ytar, at Chapel Hill. He labored with great accept- 
ance among the churches, and was universally loved by all who knew 
him. One prominent feature in his life, and worthy of imitation, was 
his love for the mission woik of this Convention. .

REV. J. M. McCURDY 

Was born in Cabarrus County, N. C, April 9, 1830, and died June 
5th, 1888. He was ordained to the full woik of the gospel ministry in 
Aui:;ust, 1880, having; preached for a number of years as a licentiate. 
His first work, however, was in ihe capacity of deacon, the duties of 
which office he discharged nobly,' thus winning for himself the esteem, 
affection and full confidence of all who knew him. 

He was the first to be baptized in his county, the first to give a dollar 
to the house of worship at Concord. He was thoroughly missionary — 
giving not only his time and talents to the cause, but a large part of the 
means accruing from his ardent manual labors. 

Not having the advantages of college training, he gave himself to 
private study of the Word, praying the Spirit's enlightenment and power 
to guide him into the truth. 

The cause of Christ owes much of its success to the active labors of 
this energetic servant of God. 

Bro. McCurdy was a suffering Christian, having received several inju- 
ries from a cotton gin, and finally, a cancer appearing under his left arm, 
resulted in his removal from earth to Heaven. 

Agam, he was a triumphant Christian. He served God, therefore, 
God has honoied him, and given him the victory. J. D. Newton. 



TITUS T. GRANDY. 

It is a mournfully pleasant duty to pay this tribute of aflection to the 
memory of the late Tnus T. Gkandy, who died in Oxford, N. C, on 
October 17th, 1888. 

He was born in Camden county, N. C, February 3d, 1824. He re- 
ceived his collegiate education at Wake Forest College, of which institu- 
tion he was for three years a student. 

When twenty-four years old, he united with Sawyer's Creek Church, 
in his native county, and ever afterwards was a zealous and active Chris- 
tian. Soon after moving to Oxford, in 1849, he was elected a deacon of 
the Baptist Church in that town, and the Superintendent of the Sunday 
School. The office of deacon he filled most acceptably till his lasl illness, 
and resigned the superintendency of the Sundoy School in 1S81. The 
prosperity, and perhaps even the existence of the Baptist Ciiurch in 
Oxford, were largely due to him and his family. 

His manners were quiet and dignified, his feelings refined and tender. 
In an eminent degree, he was truthful He acted the truth, he spoke 
the " truth in his heart." Me was charitable in his judgments of men and 



their motives. He did not " back-bite with his tongue," nor did " evil 
to his neighbor," nor "took up a reproach against his neighbor." 
Though of a quiet lemperament, he was a man of strong convictions, and 
was fearless in maintaining tbem. His conversation was pure and in- 
structive. He read much and thought more. In his home, which it was 
a privilege to visit, one breathed an atmosphere of true culture and unos- 
tentatious society. With no apparent effort, he secured the obedience, 
the love, and tlie respect of his children; and they were to him a source 
of just pride. 

His life, judged by the highest standard, was successful. It is true 
that he was greatly afflicted in the loss of so many of his children. Of 
eleven born to him, only three survive him. Several died when young. 
Two, a son and a daughter, lived to be grown, and were gracing the 
stations which they filled, when they, too, were taken from him. But 
despite these sore afflictions, he could review his life and feel that God 
had been merciful to him. He was happily married. His children are 
all of the highest character and worth, and he, with his family, was one 
of the strong moral and religious forces of the community in which he 
lived. He made the wisest use of his opportunities, and was liberal with 
his means in the support of every good cause. F. P. Hobgood.
